Light snow and rime I e on Mt Washington this week. It's been chilly up there. There is lots of water in the system, so I'm sure the ice will form when it's cold long enough. Winter is definitely on the way...

It is getting ridiculous, which is nice to see. I like his precise style of climbing. Looks almost effortless

...I think I realize what I have been doing wrong. I need to get one of those modern style puffies with the narrow compartments. Makes you look like you are a ripped Michelin Man with muscles instead of a big pillow

Will Carey has been cleaning up on some old projects at Owls Cliff and Greens this fall.  First he did The Dirty Handshake 12c/d, a beautiful long sport pitch of near vertical technical crimping, bolted by Ward Smith on the 5.10 Wall, Right Cliff of Owls http://www.mountainproject.com/v/the-dirty-handshake/107802595

Then he lead The Gap Abides 12d, another Smith project and sister route on the same wall up to a ledge (the crack above still awaits an ascent) http://www.mountainproject.com/v/the-gap-abides/109620279

He and Ray Rice also recently got over to the Main Wall at Greens and finished up one of my my open projects, The Muffin Man 12c, The steep second pitch above House Made of Dawn 11b. It is a well protected mixed route, starting up a right arching corner then breaking left onto a big flake system to a hard bolt protected bulge. The route ends on a sweet bivy ledge.

All 3 of these are high quality classic lines. From my memory of being on them, I wouldn't accuse Will of being a soft grader ;) so beware. Congratulations.

Well, I guess his shoulder is no longer bothering him or holding him back!

Great pic! (Can I have her phone #?) Like I said, I was slithering through the slot this spring and looked up for an OMFG moment. Wish that was about 70' or so.

Hey guys, long time reader, first time responder..

In regards to the laser-cut finger crack in the slot on the Sugarloaf Trail:  I scrubbed the crack and cleaned the top-out a couple years ago and climbed that thing 'til it hurt.  Really fun but too short!  The hand jam at the top makes for a secure top-out.  Not saying I climbed it first but the top was a mess.  Jumped across to the other boulder to get down.  First time I saw it I couldn't believe it.  Came to be referred to as the Sugar Shack Crack, v1 I suppose.. it's locker.

My friend and I also bolted a cool line at the west lookout on North Sugarloaf.  Tried to hide the rings from the general public, it's a long arm's reach from the lip (laying down), but can be set-up as a TR.  It goes at hard 5.11 with a huge dyno down low and a fun crux up high.  Two bolts and a #1 camalot for the horizontal mid-route.  We left two draws hanging from the anchors while we projed, came back and they were gone.  Had to have been a climber because they'd take a little work to get to.

I also wanted to ask if anyone knows whose old rigid-stem WC #3 I found in the fierce overhanging handcrack on the behemoth boulder deep in the woods on the way up to the Loaves...  If it's yours you know the boulder I'm referring to ;)  White tape on the sling.  Lobes are welded but you can have it back if you want!

Tons of rock out there, if you're willing to scrub!

The crack in question:
